Current Students

Continuation in the Honors Scholars Program

  1. Maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.45.
  2. If a student’s cumulative GPA drops below 3.45, he/she will be placed on membership probation for one semester. If his/her GPA remains below 3.45, he/she will no longer be eligible to remain in the Honors Scholar Program. The student may, however, apply for reinstatement as soon as he/she brings his/her GPA back up to 3.45.
  3. The student may receive 4 hours of honors credit for Study Abroad experiences. Guidelines for earning honors status for those Study Abroad hours are available from the Director of the Honors Scholars Program.
  4. The student may earn honors credit from non-honors courses at the 3000- or 4000-level. The modifications for those courses should be expressed via an “honors contract,” a form signed by student, teacher, and director of the Honors Scholars Program. Contract forms are available from the Honors Scholars Program Director.

Current HSP Students – Interim Curriculum 

As the Honors Scholars Program is undergoing programmatic and curricular changes, current students active in the Program have the opportunity to select into the new curriculum or to keep the requirements that are listed in their undergraduate bulletins. Once the new curriculum is in place, there will be further information and advising sessions to help students plan their future semesters.
